Dr. Grace joined the faculty at NC State in 2016 after spending four years as an Assistant Professor at the University of Miami. While completing his PhD at the University of Oklahoma, he worked full-time at nearby Tinker Air Force Base for five years as an aerospace engineer and was a graduate of the USAF Palace Acquire Program. Dr. Grace’s research focuses on composite material response to detrimental environments, with an emphasis on temperature extremes, polymer-penetrant interactions, and combined hygrothermal and mechanical loading. This work is heavily multi-disciplinary; Dr. Grace collaborates extensively with researchers in the medical field, as well as mechanical, aerospace, biomedical, and materials engineering. Dr. Grace has pioneered the use of X-band dielectric analysis in polymer composites to characterize material state and track in situ damage initiation and evolution. Dr. Grace was the recipient of the National Science Foundation’s CAREER Award for this work in 2018.
